Mongolian Octahedron Deep Purple Fluorite with Quartz and Calcite Specimen

Dimension: 7.3cm x 5.5cm x 4cm

Weight: 86g

Locality: Huanggang Fe-Sn deposit, Hexigten, Ulanhad League, Inner Mongolia, China


A very rare floater specimen of purple fluorite octahedrons with quartz discovered in the famous Huanggang Mine in Inner Mongolia.  The fluorite crystals are transparent to translucent with matt luster and exhibit breathtaking deep/vivid purple color.  It displays splendid phantoms due to its semi-transparency.  Some inclusions are seen inside the crystals with some small highly lustrous phantom quartz crystals grow above.  The quartz crystal points are partially coated by sparkly calcite crystals in golden color, so stunning!


It is complete all over floater specimen with beautiful 270 degree.  In great condition – very rare and spectacular!


Fluorite's Maintenance Advice:


Fluorite is extremely susceptible to sunlight, some colours fade slower than others, but they all fade under sunlight. The effect also happens under normal halogen light. Therefore keep Fluorite in a darker part of the home, away from direct sunlight unless it needs to be cleansed and charged. To cleanse and charge Fluorite, just pop it on a windowsill out of direct sunlight or even on a cloudy day for 10 minutes.  If it doesn't feel like that is enough, you can use reiki or sound too.
